The Disturbing REAL STORY Behind Disney's Hercules

The messed up origins of Hercules. Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/cv6b96 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Many of us know the Disney movie, “Hercules” as a feel-good story about a hunky Greek God. In the film, Hercules was turned into a demigod by the nefarious Hades. He had to perform several acts of heroism in order to reinstate his God status and return to Olympus with his parents, Zeus and Hera. Luckily he still had his superhuman strength. But things got complicated when he fell in love with Megara and sacrificed himself to save her. Because of his selfless heroic act, his God status was returned and he was allowed to return to Olympus. But he decided to stay with his mortal true love instead. Aw, so sweet! But that’s not how the real story goes. The Disney film is a pretty big departure from the way Greek mythology tells the story of Hercules. Ancient tales describe his journey as one of revenge, savagery, and madness. Here’s the disturbing real story behind Disney’s “Hercules.” ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheThingscom/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thethings.com/

Also Pegasus is actually the son of Poseidon (the sea god), and Medusa (Snake hair lady). He is also the twin of Chrysoar, which I’m pretty sure means “The golden sword”

*heracles = Hercules *artemis = Diana (Except Greek form) It’s kinda weird that the Greek and Roman names got mixed up, and combined them :/ I know they have basically the same legends and stuff but he names are different and it’d be nice bit mixing them. Not hating on the video or anything (and yes I know the movie’s name is Hercules), I just wanted to share that

I knew that there were at least 10 things Hercules got wrong: 10. Zeus didn’t create Pegasus as a gift for Hercules. Pegasus was the child of Medusa and Poseidon, and was rode by Bellerophon. 9. Hercules didn’t slay every monster in Greece. Yes, he did kill the Hydra and Newman Lion, but Theseus killed the Minotaur, while Perseus decapitated Medusa. 8. The Titans weren’t giant monsters who caused chaos. They were humans, and their reign was good. 7. There were 9 Muses. In the animated film, there were 5. 6. Hercules didn’t live with Megara forever. Hera drove him mad, and he killed his wife (Megara) and two sons. 5. Hades was not a cruel ruler, and did not treat all souls bad. Hades was a righteous leader, and the only souls he treated badly were the souls in Tartarus. 4. Zeus and Alcmene had Hercules. Zeus would always be here and there having sex with goddesses and mortal women. 3. Hades did not try to kill Hercules. Hera tried to kill him because she was jealous every time Zeus cheated on her. 2. Hades was not an evil god who wanted to overthrow Zeus. The only person who knew Zeus could fail was Prometheus. 1. Hercules was just his Roman Name. His original name was Heracles.

What, did you think a Greek mythological demigods story would be the same as the Disney movie version? That's just ridiculous.
you know... it is actually pronounced Heracles because he was named after Hera so she didn't kill it straight away. Hercules is a Roman name. ps Zeus does not care about his kids he is actually scared they would overthrow him. and you forgot the twin brother and THAT was a major part. THOSE CATTLE WERE MAN EATING CATTLE! and get some guys bull GET SOME GUYS BULL! THAT WAS LITERALLY THE FATHER OF THE MANTICORE! and clean another guy stable does not sound hard but those were the most filthy stable there was. wait am i hearing that at 5:36 they did not have a fight as soon as she took a look at him she gave him the belt for free... and no war! i don't care just don't watch the thing for mythology watch extra credits or overly sarcastic productions.

Someone forget to say on actually Hercules (Heracles) killed Hippolyta and the Amazons who pursuit him, single handed! And how Hercules was actually killed before ascend to Mt Olympus.
Jamie Lishbrook (1 month ago)
+Arkcantos -FPA- in any case i apologise for losing my head there. It was uncalled for and not my proudest moment.
Jamie Lishbrook (1 month ago)
+Arkcantos -FPA- this is awkward. I owe you yet another apology. I may have gotten my goddesses mixed up and confused hera for zeus' first wife. Who isn't as well known. In one of the legends i read zeus married another woman before hera who had better judgement than zeus did. So he ate her so she would be his conscience essentially and always be with him in his head to give him better judgement (not that he really listened to well) anyway she would later give birth to Athena who would split zeus' head open at birth and fall out of his skull. It was a weird story. Anyway im only human and my memory may have mistook her for hera when i said i read one where hera was a titan. Even through from a genetic standpoint she technically was. But yeah. My mistake man. No hard feelings i hope.
Jamie Lishbrook (1 month ago)
+Arkcantos -FPA- and yes. I know you weren't trying to be an ass. And neither was I. I apologise if it seemed like it. Later man.
Jamie Lishbrook (1 month ago)
+Arkcantos -FPA- im telling you i read a version of the legend where she was a titan. Im telling you the story now has been so obscured by time and constant retellings that the people doing the research to write books on the subject cant even agree on it. If you cant accept that than you have no business calking me stupid or lecturing me. And since were here if you REALLY wanna get technical then YES zeus was a titan. Just because you decide to change your title doesn't mean you change what's in your blood. He was bron from a titan. He had titan blood in his veins. And if you also wanna get technical of ALL the gods on olympus he was, by far, the biggest asshole. The dude cheated on his wife hundreds of times and with the exception of his children and mistresses almost completely turned his back on mortals. Im done with this conversation. Gonna go somewhere my nerdiness is appreciated. Peace out.
Arkcantos -FPA- (1 month ago)
+Jamie Lishbrook Buddy , your telling me Hera was titan? If so, goes same to Zeus. Do you know even know Hera was his elder sister? (Please... bear with this common thing if you're into Greek mythology. This is a common traditional myth, legend and also in real life. If you can't accept this fact, don't even bother to start topic on Greek mythology. Just don't practice though! ). *Check out who is Zeus and siblings parent though For Hercules (Still I prefer Heracles though) Why shouldn't Zeus let his son died? This part is an easy question but hard to answer... Maybe because he is a demigod, not immortal (this part will be even longer, don't ask...). Maybe Thanatos just want to rip his life out?!. Maybe we need more ironic story? Maybe why even you and me even communicate? (destined) Before I put in more theory to this topic this, have you even read how he died? And you din't ask about Perseus, how unfair... He also a demigod, son of Zeus. And for Hippolyta? Daughter of Ares, also means grand daughter of Zeus. However, end of the day, back to earlier argument, he still killed/slew ("Pawn" if you played DotA?) Hippolyta. He just do what he have/must do by all means to achieve his (greater) goal. And I list with reference though... Here you go, another additional source: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Herakles/amazon.html Spicific photo: Tampa 82.11.1, Attic black figure neck amphora, c. 510-500 B.C. Hercules battles the Amazons. The Amazon has fallen to one knee, supported by the shield on her left arm. A wrapped object at her waist may represent the prized belt. Collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Malibu, California I think I wrote long enough. Just left for you buddy, to read, understand and accept it. Just go by my saying: The beauty of history is it happened. The beauty of our life is to make things to happen"

Holy crap.. not even remotely correct. For one Hera, did nothing involving golden apples.. that was the goddess Eras. And in mythology the king was Hercules cousin who robbed him of the thrown at first. And then Meghara wasn’t killed by him in his fit. Just his sons. She exacts revenge on him by killing him with the venom from the hydra that he was killing the centaurs with..
